Surfing the Web with links
Using links, a really fancy text-based Web browser, you can surf the Web just as you might with Firefox or Internet Explorer, except with no graphics. That's really not a bad thing; consider that you don't have to deal with pop-up ads, banner ads, or similar junk. Just content, all the time. links even supports tables and complex Web page designs, which is unusual for a text-based browser (Figure 12.6). Related advantages of using links are that you won't have to deal with slow download times for graphics, annoying sound files, plug-ins, or other showy Web page features.
